Air-filled Isolation Cushion / Public cushion

Air-filled Isolation Cushion

Keeping the safe distance between people is an effective way to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. How should we remind people to sit in separate places and keep a safe distance in public places? And it will cost a lot to redesign public seats or add partitions, and it cannot be widely used.
Air-filled Isolation Cushion can easily solve this problem. A seat is composed of two cushions. And each seat is only connected with the seat next to it. When people sit down, the adjacent seats will be inflated by air pressure, so that other people can only choose to sit at least one seat apart, ensuring the safe distance between people.
